Glittery Leaves

Hi folks!  It's a wonderfully FALL-ish weekend, and the temps today are in the 50's!!!  Wheee!  I have been itching to play with my glitter again, so I pulled them out and picked some colors that I thought would be good for leaves.  Here's what I ended up using:

Leaves dies (Impression Obsession)
Anytime Sentiments stamp set (Impression Obsession)

I adhered the red paper to a kraft card base, then added a small strip of floral paper and some burlap.  I cut out the journaling piece (part of the Harvest Lane pad) and stamped the sentiment with chocolate ink directly onto that.  Next, I cut out the leaves from the 6x6 Double Sided Adhesive.  I peeled the backing away from one side of each leaf and covered each leaf with glitter, and then I used the Glitter Roll technique from Technique Junkies to ensure even coverage.  Once I figured out my placement of the leaves, I peeled the backing from the other side of each leaf and carefully placed each leaf onto my card.  I love the contrast of the glittery leaves and the burlap and kraft cardstock.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
